're fully expecting a 90-minute attack aimed at tearing romney down. mr. obama's traveling press secretary is joking about the whole attempt to lower expectations saying well, he could just fall right off the stage. the president is up in basically all of the most recent polls. gallup has him at 50 to 44%. reuters has him up by 7 and even fox news has him up by 5. even some top romney officials are admitting he's a lousy candidate! according to politico this morning, republicans even some of those working for romney say the real problem is not the polls or the gaffes or the leaked 47% remark, it's just mitt romney. they say he's a great businessman but when it comes to leading a political campaign, he is just, plain unnatural. and planned parenthood is stepping up its attacks against the romney campaign. this week, voters in virginia are getting fliers in the mail warning romney would turn back the clock for women. it also highlights his plan to eliminate federal funding for planned parenthood. we're back with more
of gravity? >> they're depending now on a barack obama implosion. the states are so big that they need obama to go down as they're going up. >> a lot to talk about today. let's say hi to ben la bolt. he is the national come pain manger here. we're hearing to hear from president mahmoud ahmadinejad at the u.n. when he starts speaking, we want to take part of that address. if we jump out, forgive me, but we want to make sure we get that. both sides are out with a new campaign ad, both featuring romney's 41% remarks. i want to get everybody up to speed. take a look. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on
the game a little bit while we are five weeks away from the big day. president obama is down-playing expectations big time. new jersey governor chris christie is predicting that that night will turn the election on its head. >> you saw the change this those polls happen very quickly and i'm here to tell you this morning it can happen very quickly back the other way, and i think the beginning of that is wednesday night. come thursday morning the entire narrative of this race is going to change. martha: no sub subtlety in new jersey. welcome t i'm martha maccallum. bill: i'm bill hemmer. bill: governor romney is going to practice in massachusetts before heading to cal. bold words from governor christie, are they shared by the candidate himself, john? >> reporter: not exactly bill. i don't quite know how to put it except that chris christie has never been known as a guy who likes to color inside the lines. you're supposed to raise expectations for your opponent while lore errin lowering them for your candidate. they say chris christie, is chris christie. the romney campaign is h
down by ten percentage points, president obama ahead on the economy, 6 in 10 voters, nearly 6 in 10, that is, said mitt romney's policies would favor the rich and mitt romney doesn't care about people like them. president obama's driving that message, going after mitt romney's predictions that he'll be tough on china saying that if you look at romney's record at bain capital, all that talk is fake. >> when you hear this newfound outrage, when you see these ads, these running problems seem to get tough on china, it seems a lot like that fox saying we need more secure chicken coops. i mean, it's just not credible. >> and larry, you can hear the confidence in president obama's voice because not only in ohio is he ahead, but in all of the major swing states president obama's got a lead right now. mitt romney's got to find a way to turn that around, turn it around in the debates, and maybe the tax cut issue that you're talking about will be one tool in that arsenal. back to you, larry. >> many thanks to john harwood. now for some reason on the trail today, mitt romney said he's going to
%. and down in north carolina, the race a little closer with president obama at 48% and governor romney 46%. and out west in nevada, obama, 49%, romney, 47%. but while the president holds the overall edge, voters seem less sure as to which candidate would do a better job fixing the economy. in new hampshire, 49% believe that the president would do a better job than mitt romney. 46% believe that mitt romney would do a better job. in north carolina, 47% think that mitt romney's the man to fix the economy, slightly ahead of president obama there who's at 46%. and back out to nevada, 46% think that mitt romney will do a better job, and 47% in nevada think the president can better handle the problems in the economy. that's a question of particular interest in nevada, with of course the housing crisis being at its worst there and unemployment also being above the national average. so does mitt romney have time to make up the difference when it comes to the horse race? here's what nate silver, "the new york times" numbers guru and keeper of the famous 538 blog told nbc's david gregory for the pre

on drilling down on the cost -- insured, and now we're focused on drilling down on the cost. obama-care took care of everything at once. they're going to put policies in place. health insurance companies cannot get away with using 50% of their revenue for executive retreats or executive pay. i think 80% of the money they bring in has to be spent on provider care, but i would have to double check the numbers. host: let's but some other big picture numbers of the cost of the health care law from 2006- 2011 -- $9 billion was the price tag. dave joins us from massachusetts. good morning. caller: this is another way they're getting revenue from us, and a lot of people do not know about this, but it happened to my father. he was elderly, had an injury, and was on massachusetts' health care for a short time, and he had money in the stock market. he was not in the condition to know this stuff, but after he passed, they put a claim in for every penny that he had, and they started going after his house -- and i am sure this happens to a lot of elderly people. they think they have to be a massachusetts
enough progress to take the state. if you break it down to a graphically comment the denver metro area is about half of the state. the poster child for demographic change in the united states and how it can shift is the great state of nevada. obama is running ahead of the not as far as he did in 2008. this is a little cut off here. you can see an incredible increase of nine percentage points and those that are minorities between 2000 and 2012. you can see that there has been a decline of five percentage points in the share that are white non college. that is a very quick tour through some of the swing state of the 2008 election. -- 2012 election. maybe it is time for me to say why is this? why is this going on? why does obama have a solid lead he does? many argue that this should be an arguable reaction. the stimulus was looked upon unfavorably by lot of voters. it may have helped the economy come back. it did not turn into a picture of help. what is going on? the first factor is the economy. it is not great now. it is better than it used to be. voters can remember a few years back. so
. and the reason, of course, that the obama campaign is working so hard to tamp down expectations, norah and charlie, is that they like the trajectory of the race right now. they don't want to do anything to change it. >> no doubt. thank you. both sides are trying to lower expectations for the debate because any misstep has the potential to derail a campaign. both candidates have both good and bad moments from their debate history. >> john, you're absolutely right that presidents have to be prudent in what they say, but coming from you, in the past, have threatened extinction for north korea and sang songs about bombing iran. i don't know how credible that is. >> he's very likable. i agree with that. i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough, hillary. [ laughter ] >> i appreciate that. >> mr. speaker, i know that sounds like an enormous revelation, but have you checked your own investments? you also have investments from your own mutual funds that invest in fannie mae and freddie mac. rick, i'll tell you what, 10,000 bucks? $10,000 bet? >> i'm not in the betting business -- >>
, at least, or a independent nation for governor romney and barack obama, it comes down to this. can you make the sale to these people? they are not going to vote for you unless you can close the sale and tell them something that makes them believe it you can fix the system they think is broken. megyn: so comes down to the critical independent voter. they can make the critical difference one way or the other. yet, we see this compilation of independent votes put together that shows an average of all the polling and independence, take a look -- it's the linchpin of the election. where it is now going. perfectly tied. [laughter] i mean, thanks a lot, independents. >> well, let's face it. if you think the system is broken and you say that you're not going to participate in that anymore, you are going to wait and wait it out, and see what's going on. the good news for mitt romney is that you look at those polls and see that on individual state polls and as it goes for independence. mitt romney still enjoys an advantage in several key places among independents, and that has to be encouraging for h
not just to president obama but democrats up and down the ticket. he is in demand from all quarters of the country. and i just hope and pray that bill clinton will not only get out there every day over the next 40 some odd days, but he's there to help president obama and vice president biden with the debate preps. because i agree with erick, the debates are going to be crucial this election season. >> out on the campaign trail, erick, paul ryan, the republican vice presidential nominee, he's making some serious accusations against joe biden. but joe biden is responding. listen to what joe biden said today. >> for the previous eight years all the policies that congressman ryan voted for and governor romney said he supported, all those policies in a mere eight years, they doubled the national debt. they doubled the national debt from what they inherited in 2001. >> he's right on that because the debt was about $5 trillion when president bush took office, more than $10 trillion when he left office. i think he's referring to the two tax cuts that weren't paid for, the precipitation drug
, if obama wins in the selection, it is almost certain that his noncollege when number will go down. in many ways, it will be as described as a victory 40 years later a basically upper-middle-class whites and minorities. of which there were not enough of them in 1972. but first of all, one are normally worth noting. obama runs better in the upper midwest than he does anyone else. and michigan, wisconsin, iowa. those four. the numbers are a little better. he is running at like 44 or 45 in ohio. part of that is the auto industry, more of a union type of tradition. the reality is the big anomaly. fewer of the white working class are evangelical, which drives it down economically. >> it is actually working in obama's favor. these are voters. these are parties, neither have shown that they can deliver positive economic results in their life come in right now is that republicans won't take my money and give it to people who deserve it, which was and is essentially part of the politics. republicans, think it's going to be difficult to the fact were there winning most of them. obama seems to have re
much up for grabs. >> if obama wins the nice on a national basis, some assert the number will go down from 40%. it has been described as a victory 40 years later for mcgovern coalition of middle-class whites and minorities and now there's enough to win that way. but there is one an anomaly domain, which is obama consistently runs better in the working-class and upper middle west. so a higher, michigan, wisconsin, iowa in particular, those four, the numbers are a little better. they are running at like 44 or 45 in ohio and part of that is the auto industry, part of that is just more of the union tradition, but the big anomaly is that the white working class are evangelicals. >> unemployment rose their low. >> because there's an anomaly working right now in obama's favor. but look, these are voters who are being buffeted by this economy. very little reason to have loyalty to either party. neither party has shown that they can deliver positive economic results of my life and right now the default is at least republicans won't take my money to give it to people who don't deserve it, which
according to the polls i've seen. he's made some progress on the outside margin that obama got 14 points in 2008 among the college graduate voters but he's not making nearly enough voters to take the state and if you break it down geographically the denver metro area is about half the vote in the state but that looks very similar in the polling data as it did in 2008. finally, the poster child for demographic change in the united states and how it's been shifted pretty rapidly over time as the great state of nevada. obama is running ahead of though not nearly as far as he did in 2008. but it still will cut off on my monitor but you can see an incredible increase of nine percentage points for the share of eligible voters who are minorities according to the data between 2008 and 2012. that's a massive demographic tide against the republicans and you can see there's been a decline of five percentage points in the share of voters that are colleges john became group into bills and eight. that is a very quick run through some of the swing states in the 2008 election. maybe it's time for me to
republican strategist concedes president obama is ahead as september winds down and early voting opens. >> anybody that knows football knows that fourth quarter is where most of the action happens. october will be big and if romney has a good start to the month, we'll be fine. >> reporter: grubs was against making too much of the early rush. >> in 2010 democrats had the edge in early voting, as well. i can't tell you exactly what the edge was, but it was a significant edge and republicans still swept the state. it's a difference of strategy. if you put your money in the last three weeks or early voting. >> the gop sent the first early vote mailing just this week. >> can mitt romney and paul ryan count on your support this november election? excellent. and would you be interested in voting early this election? >> reporter: karen is credited with making the iowa gops 1 millionth voter call. >> i'm calling with a brief three-question survey with issues that matter to iowa. >> reporter: she is doing her part as republicans play early voting catchp. >> we're working hard here and rolling up
time someone can really go after president obama over the administration's handling of what went down in libya and their explanation it was a spontaneous attack. this is the first time that somebody can really push directly on president obama about that. >> okay. we'll see what happens on wednesday. the debate about the debate has to end now, thank you so much. much appreciated as always. >> thank you. >> cnn's live coverage of the debate starts wednesday night 7:00 eastern. >>> the highest court in the land is now in session for a new term. supreme court justices are putting on their robes for the first time since the most talked about decision the court's made in decades, that would be obama care. joe johns is live outside the court. we never get to see the justices walk into the court. it's kind of a bummer. >> no, i know. it just doesn't happen. i think they come in the back way quite frankly, carol. >> they're going to tackle controversial issues this term. >> reporter: yeah, i think so. probably the biggest cases they've actually accepted are, starting with affirmative action. t
that president obama has let down our guard. the events in libya were tragic. the responsibility for guarding our embassies and consulates overseas -- we don't have american military protecting our embassies. it is the host country that provides perimeter security rapping out diplomatic establishments. we provide security for foreign embassies in washington, d.c. and consulates in new york city to it could lead us down? in cairo, it was the egyptian government that did not have enough security around pmc, and that is why the crowds went over the walls and a trip down the american flag and burned it and put up the black flag of resistance. in libya, it was the libyan security forces that led us down in been gauzy when ambassador stevens was killed. i don't think it is appropriate to blame the white house or the state department for this. president obama got on the phone with the president of egypt after our embassy was attacked and basically said, "you have got to do a better job" -- my paraphrasing of what i've read about this from the newspapers -- "you have got to do a better job of protecting
-driven. it would be different if barack obama were down by five points. guest: i did not think we do a good job of getting into the middle of the country and talking to those folks. you're sitting in a studio. a poll comes across and now you have something that's right in front of you that you can talk about. because of budget cuts, you are not seeing the expense -- people are not spending the money to get people talking to people. guest: there are a relative handful of people that still go knocking on doors. you always learn something when you talk to voters. i think there should be more of that. guest: you are agreeing with me. host: let's hear from an independent caller, shirley. caller: it is nice to talk with you. i watch cnn and fox. one thing none have reported -- i got it on the internet. i am 80 years old. i was born during the wpa. i know -- i think our money has been spent foolishly in the white house. they have put a clamp on a story that came now. remember when mr. obama said stay out of mexico on spring break? his daughter took a dozen friends and 25 secret servicemen to mexico. t
they can't -- it's -- the margs inhese stasre s t they need both obama to go down as they're going up. >> all right, mike. and apparently you've been deputized by "sports illustrated." you're here to reveal the new cover of "sports illustrated." >> what? >> there's a lot of goo news, good buzz inside the beltway. it's on the cover of "sports illustrated" this week. they're calling washington/baltimore america's unlikely new sports capital. seth davis, lanny son is writing in "sports illustrated" abo the beltway as the new spos surpower. we have the washington nationals tied with the reds for the best team in baseball. we have great hope for the redskins with this quarterback, rg3 which "spos illustrated" i hope he's better than that. >> yeah. it's definitely a moment. i can tell you as a yankee fan, the orioles are frightening at this point. >> aren't they something? >>ike allen, thanks so much. >> have a good week. >> a point of personal privile here. >> please. >> i want to hear about one story today and one story only. and i want to know what's going on in kansas. mika, do we have
. governor romney wants to lower tax rates by 20%, but he beat back today against charges from the obama campaign that he would give wealthy americans a huge tax cut while raising taxes on the middle class. >> i want to bring the rates down. by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. but by bringing rates down, we'll be able to let small businesses keep more of their money so they can hire more people. my priority is jobs, and i'll make it happen. [applause] >> reporter: and you heard in the first little bit of sound that you played there from governor romney, he said incomes are down, that's reinforced by a new report that came out just a couple of hours ago that shows household incomes declined again in august by 1.1%. overall during president obama's term, they are down 8.2% now. arthel: john, a lot of people think governor romney hurt himself with the 47% comment. how's he trying to battle back from that? >> reporter: yeah, it does look like he did some damage because his negatives are up. so what the romney campaign
this president down a notch. so in all likelihood my suspicion is you'll see president obama playing defense first, and mitt romney sort of going after him and trying to take a few chunks outof the armor. >> a breaking news matter out of pennsylvania you've been covering this, this judge that ruled the state can't enforce the new vote are i.d. law in the upcoming election. who does it impact, what does it mean? >> we're talking about probably 90,000 some say maybe 100,000, even more according to some accounts of people who don't have the type of i.d. required under this new law in the state of pennsylvania, the judge after an appeals court ruled had to essentially put in an injunction that injunction says we're not going to enforce this vote are i.d. law through november. nonetheless, he also left it open for people at the polls to ask for i.d. of people who come to vote. it's just that the law is not going to be enforced. there's a question rightow that we're still trying network out as to whether they will have to fill out provisional ballots or just vote regularly even if they don't have
that same red line if the iranians are going to back down. and you haven't heard the obama administration do that yet. is that the issue right now? >> well, as the prime minister said to the general assembly today, wolf, the drawing of the red line is designed to give diplomacy and sanctions more time to work. we believe by drawing that red line you won't be increasing the chances of military engagement, you'll be significantly lessening the chances of a military engagement because the iranians have been presented with red lines in the past in the straits of hormuz and they've backed down. we know they can see the color red. we're engaged in a conversation with the obama administration about setting limits to iran's enrichment process because that's the part of the iranian nuclear program that we can actually see and monitor. and that's the part that's in facilities that are observable and are still vulnerable. and so the obama administration's engaging with us in a dialogue about it. you mentioned that the secretary of state will be meeting with the prime minister this evening. the presiden
chances to catch people. >> reporter: president obama is ahead as september winds down and early voting opens. >> anybody that knows football knows that fourth quarter is where most of the action happens. october will be big and if romney has a good start to the month, we'll be fine. >> reporter: but grubs warns against making too much of the early rush. >> in 2010, democrats had an edge in early voting as well. i can't tell you exactly what the edge was, but significant. and republicans swept the state. it is a diffence of strategy. you put your money in the last three weeks or put it in the early voting. >> reporter: the gop sent its first early vote mailing just this week. >> can mitt romney and paul ryan count on your support this november election? excellent. and would you be interested in voting early this election? >> reporter: karen smooth is credited with making the iowa gop's 1 millionth voter call this cycle. >> i'm calling about issues that matter to iowa. >> reporter: she's doing her part now as republicans play early voting catch-up. >> we're working hard here. we're rolli
to the polls i've seen. he's made some progress among that outside margin that obama got the 14 points in 2008 among white college graduates voters but he's not making nearly enough progress to take the state. if you break it down geographically, the denver metro area is about half the vote in the state and that looks very similar in terms of how it is coming out in the polling data as it did in 2008. and then finally sort of the poster child for demographic change in the united states and how it can shift a stay pretty rapidly over time is the great state of nevada. obama is running ahead, though not nearly as far as he did in 2008, but look at these data. unfortunately, it's a little cut off your on my monitor what you can see that an incredible increase, nine percentage points, the share of eligible voters who are minority took place according to the data between 2008-2012. that's a massive demographic tide. you can also see there's been a decline of five percentage points in the share of voters who are white noncollege which, of course, was john mccain's best group in 2008. that's a very q
, president obama gets a boost in the polls. the romney camp plays down expectations for next week's debate. some predictions. welcome to "the willis report."
interesting with the debates, both sides try to play down the expectations and say obama saying mitt romney is a great debater. he's amazing. >> when they come out and say mitt romney can debate, you know they are trying to do something here. >> yeah. see, what do you think -- i'm having trouble getting a sense of what the american people's expectations for these two candidates are. i think the president is the president, so there's going to be a high level of expectation there. i also think mitt romney, though he's lost a little bit in this area, he's seen as a capable business person. so i do think he has a relatively high bar as well. >> i wonder. i don't center a good grasp on it and i'm asking the same question. he never really got to re-introduce himself. we're looking at his approval right now, and he never recovered like a usual nominee out of the primaries. what i noticed this summer and into the fall, there's a lot of coverage of romney the gaffe-prone guy. i wonder if that caricature sets in. >> the gaffes come from being out of touch and not stupid. >> right. i don't think anybo

. president obama has a modern view of how it wants to use the military. he decided he would take us out of iraq and he would begin to draw down in afghanistan. he said most of the combat troops would be out in 2014. we have fought two major land wars simultaneously. i think president obama wants to avoid land wars if we can in the future and use the comparative advantage that we have and that is our air power and sea power. you see him do that in afghanistan and yemen and somalia and it has been effective. i think the strategy is a good one. host: we have about 20 minutes left with our guest. republican named rick. caller: the justification for taking out anwar al-awlaki. can you justify taking out his 16-year-old son at a dinner party with his friends ? guest: that is a tough question. i'm not a lawyer. anwar al-awlaki was an american citizen but inside it terrorism against every other american. he was part of a terrorist group that would inflict a terrorist attacks on our country. i think our government had a right to go after him. as to his son, i don't have any special knowledge abo
